The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System

The Mesoamerican Reef (MAR) is the second largest coral reef in the world, stretching 1,000 km along the coasts of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. It is home to more than 500 species of fish, 65 species of hard corals, 350 species of mollusks and as many species of crustaceans. It is also home to one of the largest populations of manatees and whale sharks in the world; four species of sea turtles have been sighted: white, loggerhead, hawksbill and leatherback. The great amount of fauna that gathers in the MAR gives us one of the most incredible spectacles. Every year, during certain days, large quantities of fish gather to reproduce. Not only is it a place of great beauty that attracts countless tourists from all over the world for its picturesque beaches and beautiful dive sites, but it also acts as a great filter that detoxifies the water and air.

Mexican Posadas are one of the most emblematic traditions of the Christmas season in Mexico. This celebration, which has its roots in colonial times, combines religious and cultural elements to commemorate the pilgrimage of Mary and Joseph in search of a place to stay.

The history of Posadas dates back to the 16th century when Spanish missionaries arrived in Mexico to evangelize the indigenous population. Noticing the resistance of the native people to embrace Christianity, the missionaries decided to incorporate elements of the pre-Hispanic culture to make the Catholic doctrine more appealing.
